Best New Developments in the Financial District

The Financial District is perpetually adding more and more extravagant developments to the historic area. Many developers are taking advantage of this remarkable location and giving New Yorkers the chance to live right in the place where the city was born. And now, three new buildings have joined the neighborhood, adding to the vertical construction boom, ranging from renovated historical buildings to new construction.
